ISSA-LA March Dinner Meeting

March 20, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm

Description: March Dinner Meeting

Topic:  Securing Mobile Apps for the Enterprise

Securing Mobile Apps – that’s the big discussion today. The last couple of years enterprises have been attempting to meet this requirement by deploying client-intensive MDMs (Mobile Device Managers). This has left the apps being utilized by partners, suppliers and customers – completely unprotected. How do we meet the challenge of applying security authentication standards to these un-managed devices. This is what will be discussed/demo’d.

Presentation Break-Out:

  • I. The Condudrum: Secure the Phone or the App?
  • II. History: SMS (System Manangement Server) vs WAM
  • III. Now: MDM vs MAM (Mobile Appplication Managemnt)
  • IV: Advantage of App-Centric Security (MAM)
  • – Modifiable Authentication
  • – No Agent needed
  • – No update needed of client software for workflow/Auth change
  • V: Demo of MAM
  • VI Q.A.
